Description

Classic modern design never goes out of style: it is merely retired or subtly adapted to its given place and time. "New Modernist Type" is a collection that reveals how a graphic language of simplicity and economy has impacted contemporary design. Hundreds of modern examples by international designers are grouped into four thematic chapters: Economy, Pure and Simple; Old Modern Redux; Modern Signs and Symbols; and New, Newer, Newest. With an historical introduction putting today's tendencies in context and a reference section that includes a list of designers websites, "New Modernist Type" is a rich sourcebook of ideas for the most functional of styles.show more
